A pink faced girl with a white headscarf stumbled out of the line, put on the hat, which fell right down over her eyes, and sat down. ‘HUFFLEPUFF!’ shouted the hat. The table on the right cheered and clapped as Hannah went to sit down at the Hufflepuff table; the ghost of the Fat Friar waving merrily at her.

who run the world?

“This has nothing to do with purity. This is all about dominance, buddy. You can bet if someone ordered a male body part for religious sacrifice, the world would be atheist like that.”

Real life’s nasty. It’s cruel. It doesn’t care about heroes and happy endings and the way things should be. In real life, bad things happen. People die. Fights are lost. Evil often wins.
—  Cirque du Freak: A Living Nightmare by Darren Shan

Why do you not like fight fighters? I'm not judging, just curious.

Weeeeeeell. I like things ABOUT it.

I love the B-plot with Mabel and Stan. I like the way they animated the videogame character, and Rumble McSkirmish is funny in general. There are a lot of really good, top-notch jokes around the whole “video game come to life” concept.

Really, every episode of Gravity Falls has some really great, likable stuff in it. And this one has a bunch, so I understand why a lot of people, especially fans of fighting games, like it a lot. But there’s also a number of lines and moments that I just kind of have to pretend never happened, mostly surrounding gender in one way or another.

I personally don’t understand why “(male) child gets challenged to/accidentally challenges someone else to a fight, tries to avoid it all day, then realizes he has to go and fight the person he doesn’t want to fight (like a man”) is such a common children’s show plot. It always, always, always ties into toxic ideas connecting masculinity to violence and a willingness to endure violence. Robbie is a bully in this episode, and Dipper shouldn’t have to have his masculinity tied to whether or not he’s willing to beat up or be beaten up by someone older and stronger than he is.

I also get a crawly feeling every time I hear the line “Why can’t you learn to hate each other in secret? Like girls do!” It’s just a gross, gross line that plays into awful stereotypes about women being duplicitous, and female friends secretly hating each other/gossiping behind each other’s backs. It’s super gross and it feels gross hearing it come out of a female character as wonderful and well-written as Mabel.

So yeah, I basically just pretend all that stuff doesn’t exist and focus entirely on the B-plot, which is pure gold.

Cursed child actors in TV shows

Just a little fun post J I was actually quite surprised by some of them as i always loved watching series like Doctor Who and Merlin and i watched these episodes so often and never realized the cursed child actors were in it!

1)      Alex Price (Draco Malfoy)

Alex has the biggest list of TV appearances and i’m still laughing that i’ve seen him so often on TV and never realized it was him!

a)      Merlin

You can see Alex in a beloved series of mine, Merlin. He is in season 2 episode 2 and plays a farmer called William , who has to take Athur’s place in a competition. It’s incredible how much he has changed since then

 

b)      Doctor Who

Alex is in one of the most loved British Television series, Doctor who. You can see him in season 5 episode 6 playing a vampire-like alien. A VERY ironic fact: He is in this together with Helen McCrory, who played Narcissa Malfoy in the movies and this makes a VERY funny mother-son dynamic in Doctor Who!

c)       Being Human

(Dance it Alex! I feel VERY sorry if anyone can’t take his Draco serious anymore xD)

If here are any Being human fans i don’t think i have to say more than „Gilbert fun“! In season  episode 3 he plays the „iconic“ and lovely character of a ghost called Gilbert.

 

d)      Penny dreadful

 In this rather dark TV series he played the second „creation“ of the iconic Dr. Frankenstein and he was SO adorable in this! (season  episode 1 and 2)

Alex was in a lot more TV shows like Casuality, Father Brown, Doctors etc.

 

2)      Noma Dumezweni

I was very surprised to see that my beloved Hermione actually was in a few TV series, especially in one of my favourites, Doctor Who!

She played Captain Eriso Magambo, a UNIT officer in Donna Noble’s parallel universe. You can see her in the episodes „Turn left“ and „Planet of the dead“.

Other TV shows she was in are Shameless, EastEnders etc.

 

3)      Anthony Boyle

Anthony really didn’t do a lot before cursed child, but i found one VERY interesting TV appearance! He actually was in Game of Thrones! You can see him as one of Ramsay’s guards in season 4 episode 6, although i REALLY wouldn’t watch it if you are a big Scorpius fan! It broke my heart seeing him getting killied

 

4)      Sam Clemmett

 He wasn’t in a lot of things i know either, but i found out that he was in the British television show The Musketeers, that i watched a few episodes of! You can see Sam in season 3 episode 1.

 

I’m sure there are some more, but these are the most striking to me as these are some of my favourite TV series.
